Every body has a different story.
CO-CREATED, COHERENT NARRATIVE IDENTITY-ORIENTED LIFE STORY-WORK
At FirstPerson, we engage adults with the lived experience of developmental adversity to co-create healing-centered, community-driven programs that nurture, expand, and sustain individual, family, and community capacity for well-being.
FirstPerson’s model integrates evidence-based childhood trauma recovery practices into a unique, experiential curriculum using identity improvisation, visual thinking/collaboration, expressive art-making, embodied movement, music, and personal storytelling. Our work fosters individual and interpersonal presence, connectedness, reflection, context, wisdom, trauma release, coherence, and brain/body integration.
We envision universal opportunities to heal Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in ourselves, the families we create, and the communities where we live.
